Risks include: Learning Problems: The most common long-term effect of prematurity is some form of learning disability. Disabilities may be mild, severe, or somewhere in between, and often don’t become apparent until children begin school. Math is most commonly affected; vocabulary and reading are least commonly affected. Premature birth is birth that happens too soon, before 37 weeks of pregnancy.

Babies born prematurely may have more health problems at birth and later in life than babies born later. Premature babies can have long-term intellectual and developmental disabilities and problems with their lungs, brain, eyes and other organs. If your baby has an infection, you may notice some or all of the following signs: lack of alertness or activity. difficulty tolerating feedings. poor muscle tone. inability to maintain body temperature. pale or spotted skin color, or a yellowish tint to the skin (jaundice) slow heart rate. apnea. Long-Term Effects of Preterm Birth Preterm babies can suffer lifelong effects such as cerebral palsy, mental retardation, visual and hearing impairments, and poor health and growth. Babies born only a few weeks early (late preterm, 34-36 weeks) often have long-term difficulties such as: Behavioral and social-emotional problems.

A research group funded in part by the NICHD Pregnancy and Perinatology (PP) Branch recently released results from several studies that examined longer-term effects of pain and stress in infants born very preterm. The Long-Lasting Effects of Preterm Birth | NICHD Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. In the longest running U.S. study of premature infants who are now 23 years old, University of Rhode Island Professor of Nursing Mary C. Sullivan has found that premature infants are less health.

Pregnancy normally lasts about 40 weeks, and babies born after 37 weeks are considered full term. In the weeks immediately after birth, premature babies. While these issues often go away, some babies born prematurely have lasting asthma or similar problems.

Half a century ago prematurely born children were described by medical practitioners as suffering from “restlessness, fatigability and nervousness which resulted in diminished concentration and immature relational behaviour” (Benton, 1940). Long-term developmental outcomes of low birth weight infants. Advances in neonatal medicine have resulted in the increased survival of infants at lower and lower birth weight.

The risks to brain development associated with premature birth are more marked the earlier the gestational age and the lower the birth weight, and include lower IQ, language and learning disorders, ADHD, and minor motor coordination problems (Allen, 2008).
